Are your child’s vaccinations up to date? – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

Most Vacaville-area public school districts will resume classes for the 2015-16 school year within three weeks, and for most incoming kindergarten and seventh-grade students it means immunization and vaccine records must be up to date before they walk into class.

Kendra Murthil, a public health nurse with Solano County Public Health, said the following shots are required for those affected students, unless they have some sort of exemption on file:

Kindergartners need Dtap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), polio, hepatitis B, MMR (mumps, measles, rubella), and varicella, or chicken pox, vaccines.

To enter seventh grade, students need a booster shot, Tdap (for tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis).
